WEALDEN RACING FORD ESCORT
This car is raced by Craig Rainer in the Ford Saloon Car Championship. It has enjoyed many race and class wins and took the overall championship title in 2002.
All the design, fabrication, build and set-up was by JEMS. First studying the championship regulations JEMS built a one-off suspension, building it square and with the correct geometry. The front end had to be completely redesigned to be wider to change the front to rear ratio split. This involved moving the strut tops outwards and the manufacture of a new crossmember, TCAs, compression struts, anti-roll bar, drop link, steering arms etc.
The rear end axle linking is different too with the turrets moved inboard, roll-centre adjusters on the axle and a rear anti-roll bar. The suspension has a lot of adjustability, which makes a real difference on the track.
The engine is a JEMS built YB designed for torque, responsiveness and reliability.
